Exercises to Relieve Arthritis Knee Pain by Dallas Knee Doctor
Unfortunately, knee osteoarthritis causes stiffness and pain in the knee joints. In order to help relieve arthritis knee pain it is important that you get moving. Motion helps increase synovial fluid which helps the natural lubrication in your knees. In addition, exercises strengthen the muscles around the knee which alleviates the pressure on the cartilage.
Unfortunately, not all exercises will help relieve knee pain. As a matter of fact some exercises may aggravate your condition. Here are some guidelines to follow:
Cycling is always the best option to help relieve knee pain:
Walking, cycling, and swimming will all help relieve mild osteoarthritis pain, and stiffness in the knees. However, cycling or using a recumbent bike, in my opinion, is the best choice of activity for the knee joint. A recumbent bike allows the thigh muscles to get strengthened without wearing down the cartilage in the knee joint. Start by cycling for 5 minutes daily for one week, and every week thereafter increase your time by 5 minutes until you reach 20 minutes. In the beginning, only use a resistance of 1 or 2, and then continue to increase the resistance by one notch every three weeks until you reach a 5. Finally, make sure that the seat on the bike is adjusted properly so that you don’t further injure your knee joints.
Exercise done correctly should not cause any knee pain:
You should never experience any knee pain during or after exercise, and if you do- STOP. Please remember there is a significant difference between PAIN and soreness. Experiencing muscle soreness after exercising is normal and is a good thing! It means you’re actually using and working out the muscles!!
Low weight, more repetitions:
If you’re doing leg extensions or leg curls at the gym make sure that you are using very light weight and completing more repetitions. When performing a leg extension never stretch out the knee completely. You should stop the extension right before the leg becomes fully extended, so the joint never locks.
Avoid doing squats and lunges:
Individuals with mild to severe osteoarthritis should not be doing squats or lunges; especially if you have been diagnosed with chondromalacia patella. (This is a condition where the cartilage behind the knee cap has thinned and worn down.)
Avoid exercises that force the knee joint to ‘twist’.
Any activity where an individual is planting their foot on the ground, and twisting their upper body should be avoided. This type of movement will aggravate an arthritic knee and may cause meniscus or cartilage tears in the knee. The more arthritic the knee joint, the drier the cartilage becomes and any sort of twisting on the joint can cause meniscus tearing. Individuals with moderate to severe arthritis should avoid playing golf and tennis because these activities will aggravate an arthritic knee.
Finally, keep in mind, ‘rest, will make you rust.’
(I read this quote in a newsletter recently, and I thought it was appropriate for this blog.)
If you suffer with moderate to severe osteoarthritis you will not feel like walking, cycling OR swimming. However, it is vital that you get moving otherwise your condition will worsen. Doing five minutes of SOMETHING is better than doing NOTHING. Once you start exercising, it will eventually become addictive because ALL of your joints will feel stronger and more flexible.
Again, exercising the knee joint should not be torture! Your knee should feel good during and after any activity. If it doesn’t then you’re doing the wrong exercise or you’re not doing the exercise correctly.

Cold Laser Therapy Eliminates Pain for Utah Jazz Basketball Player
Utah Jazz’s Earl Watson sought treatments to relieve pain and swelling from a sprained ankle after he had to sit out a game against the Clippers on February 2nd. Since the Utah Jazz’s team doctors’ don’t utilize cold laser therapy; Watson had to take a detour to visit his long time doctor in Los Angeles who performed the treatment on his ankle. After four cold laser therapy treatments the swelling and the pain in his ankle drastically reduced and he was able to play against the Lakers on Saturday.
The results? Watson scored eight points, and eleven assists. The Utah Jazz won 96-87 over the Lakers.
Jazz coach, Tyrone Corbin was asked about the treatment and he stated, “It looked like [cold laser therapy treatments] worked. His swelling is very down from what it was. He’s back on the floor. So that’s what I’m excited for.”
Watson stated, “I love to compete. So I’m not one to ever linger around any injury and sit out long times.”
He now insists that after cold laser therapy treatments he no longer has any ankle pain.
Dr. Schnee’s Opinion:
This article in the Deseret News shocked me because I couldn’t believe that the team doctors for the Utah Jazz weren’t using cold laser therapy to help their athletes. That just seemed so antiquated to me. Especially, since other professional sports teams have been using this type of treatment to help their athletes recover faster, with great success, for many years.
In my opinion, there is no valid reason why cold laser therapy shouldn’t be incorporated in EVERY sports team’s injury recovery regime.
The bottom line is…it appears as though the doctors’ working for the Utah Jazz need to start reading more research studies about new and effective treatments available to help their athletes. Of course the first order of business is to learn about cold laser therapy.
That is, if they want their players healthy enough to actually win games.
